Peter and I had been travelling Ireland for five days last week. The trip was planned long ago as a "trial trip" for Peter's company. We travelled together with B., a colleague of Peter and B.'s lovely wife Z. It was my first time travelling to Ireland and I was immediately smitten with the lush green Irish landscape. Oh so many shades of green...
We rented a car at Dublin Airport and drove straight to Kilkenny, our first stop. I was quite confused though by left-hand driving and left-hand traffic. Glad that B. took on driving all the time. Thank you so much, B., your are indeed a brave driver!
We arrived in Dublin just in time for rush-hour traffic. But eventually we arrived at our hotel which was situated close to the river Liffey and a walking distance from the Temple Bar district. Have a guess where we spent the evening?
We also visited St. Patrick's Cathedral,
which has amazing floor tiles. Almost like a blanket made of quilts.
All in all a superb trip. I love the landscape, the cities and towns, the food, the cakes, the people - but most of all the colours of Ireland.
